It was the first time that french brothers competed in European Cup. Paul Pogba describes the fact of playing against his brother as « magical ». For the occasion, Florentin the elder, sported a hairstyle more than symbolic. The number 19 on one side, his number at Saint-Etienne and the 6 on the other side, that of his younger brother at Red Devils. Before even entering the pitch, at half-time, the two brothers continue to chat again and again, and then exchange a « check » proper to them a few seconds before the kick-off. A show that bothered some people. Roy Keane, Manchester United’s legend, has non appreciated it « I think it was a little bit over the top tonight – before the game and at half-time, » he said after the meeting.

The two brothers promised to enjoy the moment, because it doesn’t happened every day. What they did. But during the match, they did not crosshatch other much on the field. Florentin, victim of cramps, came out in the 79th minute. At the end, it was Paul Pogba who won the game. Manchester United won to the large score of 3-0 with a hat trick of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The new meeting of the Pogbas will take place at Geoffroy Guichard next Wednesday on the occasion of a return match.
